Acupuncture and Moxibustion are traditional treatment modalities that originated in Ancient China. They were introduced to Japan over a 1000 years ago and have been uniquely adapted to suit Japanese climate and culture.
A traditional acupuncture treatment aims to balance the Qi of the body. Qi is the characteristic concept of acupuncture. It denotes some sort of energy that warms, up, protects and nourishes the whole body.
From a modern scientific viewpoint, it is regarded that the stimulation of acupuncture and moxibustion affects the autonomic nervous system, the endocrine system, and the immune system to reduce muscular pain and improve the circulation of blood and lymph fluid. As a result the treatment works on achieving physiological homeostasis.

There are many different types of styles of acupuncture. An oriental medicine - based treatment is our choice.
We place great importance on diagnosing a patients body condition by feeling the pulse, palpating the abdomen, and observing the colour of the tongue. All clients are requested to wear a patient gown with a zip and velcro for ease of movement during the treatment. Our motto is “Best efficacy by soothing treatment” Painless acupuncture and moxibustion are central to an acupuncture treatment.
We recommend our style to those who are simply interested in acupuncture or have experienced fatigue after having an acupuncture session in another clinic. Our treatment also could make a difference in one's health who simply feels unwell; is not sleeping soundly, or experiencing menstrual problems, despite good results from a medical check up.
We apply a “contact needling technique” which uses the tip of the needle to only gently touch the surface of the skin on sensitive parts of the body, such as the abdomen, hands and feet. This non- insertive needle method can effect positive changes in the body.
Moxibustion might be a less known means of oriental medicine compared to acupuncture. Dried moxa (Artemesis Vulgaris or Mugwort, Yomogi in Japanese) is rolled into small rice grain sized cones and burnt directly on the patient’s body, and taken off when the patients feels the heat. This method works to improve colds and chills. We use high quality moxa that has a very pleasant aroma, which many people like.
When you have a strong stiffness or tightness in your back and hip, or want to improve fertility, the insertive needle technique could be applied. We mainly use very fine needles, finer than a hair to avoid unnecessary pain.
Some people may find a clear change in their body after the first session but many actually feel the benefit of the treatment more after 3-4 successive sessions every 7-10 days.
To provide the patients with a relaxed atmosphere our clinic operates by advanced reservation only.
A life with Yojo
-Tips for self care-
An acupuncture treatment is different from drug administration and surgery in that it cannot implant or extract something from the patient’s body. Acupuncture just allows the body’s own inner healing mechanism to fix the problem.
The way a patient can enhance the treatment and let the effect of the therapy last longer is through daily lifestyle.
Please be a little more conscious of the food you eat everyday, the clothes you wear, exercises, and the mindset you have. Japanese people in olden times used to call this self care concept Yojo （養生） and learnt it to conduct their lives in a proper manner.
However, it is not easy to change daily habits, also everyone has their own social and domestic circumstances. We are happy to give you correct suggestions to suit your situation. Let’s bring Yojo into your life to enrich the health of your body and mind.
